Colorado Dems Statement on Trump’s 2nd Impeachment
Denver, CO – The Colorado Democratic Party released the following statement following the U.S. House of Representatives voting to impeach Donald Trump for a second time after he incited riots in the U.S. Capitol that claimed five lives:
Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party:
“This is a sad day for our country. All leaders of all parties had a clear opportunity to say we put our country first and draw the line at violent insurrection against our nation, our elections and our laws. All House Democrats and ten Republicans were willing to stand against insurrection and for American values.
“I cannot speak highly enough about the courage and perseverance of Colorado’s Democratic representatives displayed during the attempted coup and the leadership role they took immediately afterward in impeaching the most dangerous and corrupt President in U.S. History.
“The courage of the ten House Republicans shines an even harsher spotlight on Lauren Boebert, Ken Buck, and Doug Lamborn — all of whom stood by Donald Trump, even after he tried to coerce election officials to change votes, to get judges to throw thousands of lawful votes out, and incited riots at the U.S. capitol.
“It is stunning that, even in the face of seditious behavior from this White House, Colorado’s three Congressional Republicans would still side with Donald Trump — not America, not the Constitution, not the People, not the Republic. Colorado won’t forget.”
